Google’s Chrome OS has been quietly gathering pace behind the scenes and whilst it wasn’t taken too seriously in the early days it is fast maturing into a popular Windows alternative.
This new ChromeBook from Samsung is a slick lightweight Chrome powered laptop that is also able to run Android apps too. That gives you a lot of software right out of the box making this a serious Windows based laptop competitor.

Samsung Chromebook Pro Review
The Pro isn’t released yet, we’ve only got a few leaks to go on. But from the looks of things this is shaping up to be a nice looking Chrome powered laptop from the guys at Samsung.
I might be buying one of these for my own personal use. I’m in the market for a larger tablet to go with my smaller 7″ tab and the laptop form factor seems right on target.
If Samsung get this priced right they could have a winner on their hands.
